Iger has done a good job getting the company back on track after Eisner started to get a little out of hand. I can only hope Iger will continue the emphasis on improving and expanding the theme parks and continuing to produce quality animated movies.
However, I don't know about the reported effort to build Shanghai Disneyland. Is the market that rich over there to make a third park in Asia worth it? Do you realize that once Shanghai Disneyland is completed, Asia will have more Disneyland/Magic Kingdom parks than any other continent in the world (total of 3 - North America only has 2)? Now, if you count all Disney parks, the numbers stand thus:
- North America: 8 (DL, DCA, MK, Epcot, DHS, DAK, 2 water parks)
- Asia: 4 (HKDL, TDL, TDS, SDL)
- Europe: 2 (DLP, Studios)
- Africa: 0
- Australia: 0
- South America: 0
